(12 May 1812 – 29 January 1888 / London / England)

Imitation Of The Olden Poets

Time is a taper waning fast!
Use it, man, well whilst it doth last:
Lest burning downwards it consume away,
Before thou hast commenced the labour of the day.

Time is a pardon of a goodly soil!
Plenty shall crown thine honest toil:
But if uncultivated, rankest weeds
Shall choke the efforts of the rising seeds.

Time is a leasehold of uncertain date!
Granted to thee by everlasting fate.
Neglect not thou, ere thy short term expire,
To save thy soul from ever-burning fire.

Where she her hostage spouse doth espy. Mine being gone, I have a dismal existence, I have an adoring friend, yet appear to be no spouse; Be that as it may, to top it all off, to him can't direct my course, lovely sonnet. http: //www.4cashpath.com/
